Registrations are already open,http://www.sbbmch.cl /? page_id = 14220Once in the registration platform, you can see that other members have signed up.
It is important to mention that the official language of the Congress will be English. I meanall presentations will be in English. We have several interested in participation from abroad.
You can book lunch and dinner by the days of the Congress at the time of registration (3 lunches and 1 dinner), the cost is $60,000. The welcome cocktail and the final dinner are included with registration.
Accommodation each partner should be responsible in particular. The hotel will have preferential rates for participants of the Congress (detail in)https://www.sbbmch.cl/?page_ID = 14220).
In addition, we'd like to comment that the transfer from the airport to the hotel has an approximate cost of $5000 and it takes about an hour to reach the hotel. Taxi costs around $18000, with a time of 30 minutes approximately to reach the hotel. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the Centre.

Support to students and partners without financing.

As society are still making a great effort to support our partners in time the financial situation for the national science is not the most optimal. First of all, registration prices will not suffer any change with respect to 2017.

This year the SBBMCh will deliver a limited number of scholarships to students of undergraduate (thesis/memory/seminar of registered title), magister (approved draft) and doctoral (PhD candidate), to partially pay for accommodation and food. This scholarship will not cover the registration.Each scholarship amounts to $150,000.
The scholarship application must be concocted by the student to present the work orally or mode poster, who must be also the first author of the abstract. The amount awarded will be awarded to the student but required the signature of the sponsoring partner to deliver it. There will be a maximum of 1 scholarships by partner. Requested that at the time of application the student indicates who is sponsoring the working partner in case that this is not the Principal investigator of the laboratory (but the sponsoring partner must be author of the work to present).
The scholarship of the SBBMCh isincompatibleCONICYT scholarship for assistance to Congress. Therefore, if the student was awarded scholarship CONICYT may not apply for Fellowship of the society (if it is subsequently awarded the CONICYT scholarship, must return the scholarship society).
For this nomination: A) student and sponsor shall have completed the registration process (i.e. up to July 15, 2018), B) student must have uploaded abstract the platform and send a signed letter explaining the need for the grant to Claudia Quezadaclaudiaquezada@uach.cluntil July 20, 2018. The student must send emailwith a copy to the sponsoring partner mail. In addition that becomes a holder of a scholarship, students must participate and assist in the delivery of microphones when there are questions in the sessions of the Congress. Once accepted the scholarship, Claudia Quezada distributed sessions scholarship students.
Can also choose this grant international students that meet the requirements, and that your agent is a member of any company affiliated with the IUBMBhttps://iubmb.org/adhering bodies and associate-adhering-bodies /

Also this year we will bescholarships for members who do not have any fundingand want to go to the Congress. Do not cover the registration. This scholarship will consist of $150,000 and will be delivered at the Congress. To apply, the partner must send a letter to Claudia Quezadaclaudiaquezada@uach.clexplaining the need for the scholarshipuntil July 20, 2018.

For those who do not know Iquique, we share recommendations of 3 Iquiqueñas

Hilda M. Alfaro-Valdés, Biotechnologist of the Universidad Arturo Prat, Iquique

Iquique is great and very walkable... I recommend you to go to Cavancha, Brava Beach and is also Huayquique Beach which is farther away from each other. There is a ride called Baquedano in Iquique and almost at the beach as 3 or 4 blocks is the Astoreca Palace which belonged to a family that was owner of nitrate, highly recommend it. Walk Baquedano itself is pure heritage. Humberstone is a 45 min drive from Iquique is reachable by bus also. A little earlier humberstone there are other nitrate as Santa Clara. I also recommend that Pica will an Oasis located in the middle of the desert but it is great. There is the Lake which is a thermal bath of warm water and sold many juices and traditional foods such as meat of call etc. That is about 3 hours from Iquique. And the Tirana which is like 2 hours where the main attraction is the Church for the Virgin Mary. It is also the salar de Huasco 100% recommend it is beautiful with a beautiful wetland and seen flamingos, is ice cream so have to go warm this is as about 4 to 5 hours from Iquique and as 1:30 maybe from Pica. Also this Tarapacá but that is towards Arica... by bus can be easily Pica, Humberstone but the salar de Huasco perhaps better tour...

Recommendations of must-see in the city:

Custom, plaza Prat, walk Baquedano and houses of the Peru time, the Municipal Theater and the Astoreca Palace.
I could not know it, but there is a Museum, further north of the Customs I think, that it is a replica of the Emerald.

In the Centre, is the Santa María school. There used to be a plate, I do not know now what will be... But it is as a tribute to the pastured and working class going to think one second in them and the massacre that occurred there... That has more sense when you know Humberstone or when listening to the Cantata of the Quilapayún or read in history what happened at Iquique on December 21, 1907.

To the South of Iquique, the airport, are the guano of Pabellón de Pica. They brought there as semi-esclava to Chinese labor... is heavy that history. And there is why Patricio Lynch, the Red Prince, had the support of them in the war.

When it comes to food, South of Iquique is also the green sector, with very fresh dishes from the coast; exquisite also are the cavanchinos, with fried fish marraqueta Chilean salad, lettuce and other things. Sell sick Hedgehog also and as everything is beyond half aperuanado, Greaves of fish are in various parts and are very tasty. Restaurants are fed up with rich, they will surely recommend them some, I'm very outdated to recommend any, but I remember as one of the best the Neptune in the Center and several others in the sector of El Morro. And finally, something that you can ignore all Zofri, because there's nothing that you can not find in Santiago at the same prices, except for the liquor, cigarettes and perfume.
